The Royal Gala is one of the world’s most popular apples. Did you know it was born and bred here in New Zealand in the 1930s?!  It is a cross between a Golden Delicious and a Kidd’s Orange Red apple. It gained the name ‘Royal Gala’ as it has more bright red colouring than the gala apple. The Royal Gala Apple is crisp, sweet and juicy, with firm white flesh and a satisfying crunch. It’s the perfect snacking apple but also well suited for salads, desserts, savoury cooking and juicing.
